People get too crazy about THC content and potency in their cannabis products, but I don’t seem to see that mindset in wine lovers.
A batch with a higher alcohol content might make the user more intoxicated with less in their stomach, but it’s not necessarily going to lend to a better flavor profile and experience.
A higher alcohol content might result in a less complex beer flavor profile as well, but every batch is different. At the end of the day, a beer or wine lover will often choose their favorite blends for reasons that go much farther than merely the alcohol content inside. I have looked at forums on the internet to confirm this suspicion of mine. The reason why is that I’m a cannabis enthusiast who feels this way about THC content in cannabis products. Too many people are chasing high THC levels without realizing that the entourage effect is more important. This is the synergistic effect you get when you combine THC with other cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, and THC and terpenes like myrcene, pinene, linalool, limonene, and terpinolene. If you increase the percentage of terpenes present relative to THC, you get a more potent experience with the cannabis product. That’s why I tell people that they need to focus on terpene percentages when shopping for marijuana products. This is true regardless of whether or not you’re smoking cannabis flower products or putting marijuana tinctures under your tongue. You will almost always feel a strong effect from a cannabis product if you get ones with the highest possible terpene percentages based on what kind of product you’re dealing with.
